Country music legend Hank Williams Jr. did not spare any criticism for President Barack Obama during a weekend performance at the Iowa State Fair.

After the song, “We Don’t Apologize For America” a chant of  “USA, USA” broke out among the 8,500 people at the Grandstand on Friday night, the Des Moines Register reports.

Williams, 63, smiled, telling the crowd that he was their mouth piece before adding, “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US – and we hate him!”

The crowd roared with loud and enthusiastic cheers, the Register reported.

When reached for comment Saturday, Brad Anderson of the Obama campaign in Iowa said in an email, “That type of absurd nonsense doesn't really deserve a response.”

Last year, Williams’ criticism of Obama on a Fox News program led ESPN to drop his “Monday Night Football” theme song after 22 years.

Williams also took jabs at the president, ESPN and “Fox & Friends” in his opening song “Keep the Change” before performing “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight,” the basis for the “MNF” theme.
